    Thank you for your help.
    I went to Toshiba and got a run around.
    I went to Fry's Electronics and no one knew what I was talking about, let alone speak English.

1720 s.m.a.r.t HDD detects imminent failure the computer cant boot-up.


if you haven't got a good back up, external to the hard drive, it may be too late
dead hard drives are mostly un recoverable
take it to a computer repair shop to make sure that it is not a boot problem
if the hard drive is failing, replace it with a solid state hard drive that has no spinning discs to fail

Satellite S50-B-15P Hi I want to find out what type of SSD drive is installed in my laptop. I want to up-grade to higher capacity. Thanks


Download SiSoft Sandra. It will tell you exactly what you have and also test every component. The best program by far and has been since Windows 98.

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise


One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.

You can recover the file with 3rd party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover files from external hard drive with Tenroshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost files. By the way,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your file can be recovered. Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

I have doctor antivirus pop ups


Unfortunately, the only way I've found to be completely rid a machine of this is to wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system. This is an advertisement virus and this particular bug leaves several sleepers that lie inactive making it near impossible for any antivirus to find them. Once you get rid of the active virus, one or two, but not all of the sleepers will activate leaving several more hidden and inactive, and what makes it even harder to "get rid of" is that it hides the sleepers in file that your antivirus normally doesn't check on a regular basis, ie... picture files, music, screen savers, etc.. It will also hide them in registry files, so doing a system repair won't work either.
